    The next Mego Meet will take place June 9-11, 2022 in Columbus Ohio

    We attempted to give it a go for 2021, but too many folks will be unable to make it to Columbus in June due to a variety of Covid issues and uncertainty. The venue allowed me to roll our deposit over until next year, so we will proceed with 2022 as our new target. We will still do the bandwidth benefit auction in some fashion, either Ebay or possibly something in partnership with our official Mego Meet auctioneer Chris Noon.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I know this has to be a difficult (and frustrating) decision, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Thanks for announcing this at a time when people can make/not make/alter plans accordingly.

    Yeah, this year is too complicated I'm afraid. It was almost impossible that I could attend and well, the "I can't make it" voices outweighed the "can't wait to comes", it is what it is.

    The right call to make, 100%. Sometimes folks need to be saved from themselves.

    Totally understood, still a bummer.

    I might still take a day trip down to Ohio that weekend to hit up some spots.

    June wasn't a crazy town thought. Most of us will be vaccinated(who want to be) by the end of April. If cases continue to decrease as the US resumes activities and vaccines are administered, mid-June probably wouldn't be risky. That being said, there are a lot of 'ifs' in that scenario and there's no point in having a family reunion when half the family can't come. I won't apologize for trying and I don't need anyone to save me from myself. The endgame of every disagreement doesn't have to be that one side is comprised of thoughtless idiots.

    Thanks Steve, I think it was the right call. I'll get working on some items for the auction.

    Thanks Paul. I don't see a down side to erring on the side of caution, other than it's now going to be three years between meets. I hope the apes can hold off from taking over for another year.

    Amen. I think we have the slogan for our Mego Meet t-shirt!

    No one called you a thoughtless idiot. No need to go from Bixby to Lou. Opinions don't have to be the same to be respected. I'm of the opinion I'd err on side of caution rather than see one of my friends here catch it. If others feel safe, I respect their position. Whether I agree or not doesn't factor into it as I'm not organizing it. Still think you made the right call. I really hope 2022 has a record turnout for yahs. I think this community of friends needs a fun gathering like this. I feel bad about efforts you made to make this happen only to cancel.
